Explora Latam is an effort to standardize advances in the open data and civic technology agenda in Latin America. Through the systematization of open data and civic technology initiatives in the region, this project seeks to make a complete diagnosis of the current state of development and results of open data and technology initiatives that will allow the generation of knowledge on how to scale up these efforts to maximize the social, economic and democratic impact in Latin America. In addition to identifying the efforts, it is also important to explore and learn not only about the projects and organizations that are working in the area but also to understand what value they have generated, what value they can (or want to) generate in the future, what kind of resources are available to them, and what are the most important challenges to achieve the expected benefits in the region.
